Strategies for Your Board
As fans of data, we love this blog's Action Tip #4: "What gets measured gets done." The blog recommends putting systems in place to evaluate board performance and that can be as easy as using spreadsheets. But, we would argue that the suggestion of assigning a staff member to follow up with each board member on specific responsibilities is perhaps more important. Even better, as the blog endorses, make it part of your agency work plans and build it into job descriptions.
